We Are Not Prepared For The Closure Of Schools – Teachers Voice Out
Reports gathered from numerous media platforms indicate some private school tutors in the Accra community, have expressed worry over the increasing cases of COVID-19 in the country, though they are not well-prepared for the second closure of schools.
Currently, the country has recorded a wholesome number of coronavirus cases in schools.
This has generated fear and panic among citizens who have their wards in school.
According to media reports, these teachers said their livelihood was dependent on the occupation, hence the second closure of schools would be detrimental to them.
Madam Helena Onua Offen, a teacher at True Vine School located at Adenta, said she had been praying against the second closure of schools because, her only means of survival was teaching.
Mr Ernest Ofori Asempa, a teacher at the Christiansburg Preparatory School at Ogbojo, said he could not bear the difficulties his family went through, during the first closure of schools.
Mr. Ernest said though schools had resumed, he and his family were yet to recover from the adverse effect of the long break, and may not be able to endure a second closure of schools.
